Cancun Real Estate Represented at World Travel Market 2009
By Thomas Lloyd
For several decades now, Cancun Real Estate
has been a favorite for international property purchasers for enjoying
a beachfront lifestyle or a for investment purposes. For Mexico MLS listings, and internationally, Cancun MLS
listings have become among the most popular for buyers. Recent events
have begun to bring even further attention to Cancun as an
international travel hub and business center, which will in turn open
up further real estate opportunities in Cancun. This new expanded
international status has been highlighted in several events, among
which is Cancun's representation in the World Travel Market 2009,
Europe's most important tourism fair, held in London, England.
The Governor of Quintana Roo, Cancun's state, Felix Gonzalez attended
the event along with the mayor of Cozumel, Juan Carlos Gonzalez, and of
Playa del Carmen, Roman Quián. The governor presented the virtues of
Cancun not only as the key tourism destination in the Mexican
Caribbean, but one of the top destinations in Latin America, many of
which also reflect Cancun's appeal as an international real estate
Among the points to which Gonzalez drew attention are the ongoing beach
recovery project, which is re-widening beaches in Cancun to expand the
enjoyment of visitors and residents. Likewise, the newly opened second
runway of Cancun International Airport, which makes the airport the
most modern and cost efficient air port in Latin America and the
Caribbean. This expansion is one of the key points in converting Cancun
to an international business center, allowing the airport to begin its
conversion into an international travel hub between North America and
South America, and giving larger capacity to the larger amount of
business visitors expected in the near future. Besides new real estate
investment opportunities, this growth also means more convenience in
traveling for Cancun residents.
The event was attended by major wholesalers and tour operators in
Europe. The Cancun Visitors Board held about 20 meetings with different
wholesale operators, airlines and media, where representatives
highlighted the salient features of Cancun, particularly the allusion
to the new promotion project being developed called "Cancun and the
treasures of the Mexican Caribbean."
Cancun is an intrinsic part of the rugged competition that exists in
the Caribbean region for the tourist and real estate markets of this
region of Europe, its unique diversity, quality of service and natural
atmosphere; the attractions and activities present value for money,
just as real estate, where Cancun is certainly number one.
